I am running Mac OS X 10.4.7 on a G4 TiBook. I have a single internal ATA hard drive and want to share a folder containing family photos with my wife who has an IBM laptop running Windows XP Pro with all current updates. I can see the folder in her Network Places, but when I try to connect, I get the infamous messge that says I may not have privileges, etc.

From reading other posts it seems that one step is to make sure that the Ignore File Permissions box is checked (or unchecked). But I cannot find such an option in my Get Info box for the Folder, the drive - nowhere. I'm not a newbie but obviously I am missing something basic. Is this option only available on Firewire Drives? What about the startup volume? Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that option is only available if the drive is not your startup drive, for security reasons.

Are you trying to make the folder guest accessible?

Where in your disk hierarchy is the folder you are trying to share? If it is in a home directory, then you will need to move that folder out of the home directory and share it from that new location.
